and will adjust plans as necessary.
Ride with us on Saturday, September 5th
Bike to the Beach, the national organization that raises funds for Autism awareness, is partnering with Bike Newport for an ninth year!
Join the Bike Newport RI 2020 team on our favorite ride of the year and help support our effort and get us to our goal of $5000!
Bike Newport helps adults and children of all abilities – and Bike to the Beach supports our programs. Students with Autism and a range of other challenges have a great time at our Bike Garage – getting greasy working with bikes – maintaining, fixing, and riding – having a great time and developing many important skills along the way.
This ride is our chance to give back to Bike to the Beach and help raise awareness and funds.
What we’ll be doing:
The Bike Newport team rides 62 miles from Woonsocket to Newport every year – because where else but L’il Rhody can you you ride the full length of the state before lunch?? Please support our efforts, our programs, and Bike to the Beach for Autism. Thank you!!!
